Data Protection Officer Services



Given the evolving nature of cybersecurity and compliance, many businesses lack the immediate resources to effectively hire and maintain the Data Protection Officer (DPO) role. But having a DPO is critical to protecting critical data and systems, as well as ensuring ongoing compliance.

The DPO advises, trains and informs your company and staff on data protection obligations. The DPO lends advice on data protection impact assessments and monitors compliance with data protection law. Your DPO also acts as a point of contact of data subjects and supervisory authorities.

And most importantly, a DPO must be able to report directly to the highest levels of management within your organization. So, if you don’t have the resources to hire an internal DPO, you should consider hiring an outsourced Data Protection Officer.

By outsourcing the role of DPO to RSI Security you’ll be able to achieve the following:

Engage our experienced team of data privacy specialists in various industries
Outsource your data protection so you can focus on core business functions
Improve the level of compliance with all applicable regulatory frameworks
Mitigate risk and prevent data breaches using RSI Security’s cyber defense experts
Gain ownership and structure of all privacy and data protection activities
